Members of the gardaí have been invited by the PSNI to march in this year's Belfast Pride Parade.
The annual event takes place on August 5th and will see PSNI officers march in uniform for the first time.
Members of the gardaí, their families and friends have also been invited to take part.
An Garda Síochána says members may do so in uniform with permission.
However attendance is at the garda member's own expense.
